A sincere thank you for your help, guidance and occasional therapy (for me) during xxx college application process....You were always there, enormously helpful, ready and willing. Of course it was a fantastic result, reaching our highest hopes. Thank you!


Thank you so much for all the support and guidance that you have given me in this very difficult process. Without you, I definitely would not be able to call myself a Barnard woman! Thank you so much for all the essay-reading, advice on visiting schools, and support!


Our son is still thriving, getting excellent grades, very involved in his fraternity and literary society. A perfect fit, thanks to you.


You have helped xxx and xxx find paths that, as of today, make them happy with the journey, and xxx (3rd child) is just about over the moon about his redirection.


“You are the best as I always say, and I am so glad my son has you in his court.”


You are a genius. I can’t praise you enough.


I would like to give you a super thank you! The learning process, the knowledge you impart and the training of the thought process, is unrivaled. I see you in the email below and all the skills you have taught her, and to think she is in college and using them. What you taught her is priceless.


I have just received email from NYU—they accepted me! Thank you so much for your help, you made this admission possible!


I have been accepted to Georgetown University Law Center! Thank you for all your help through the process; my application was a stronger product because of your efforts.


We are all thrilled with xxx acceptance at Columbia. The news will brighten our holidays. Thank you for all of your assistance throughout the application process. Although all of your guidance was helpful, I especially thought that your advice regarding how xxx could emphasize certain aspects of his resume to enhance his application, and your insights about how to respond to some of the essays and optional appendices, were particularly valuable.


You have provided support and guidance (and encouragement and confidence) in a way that was quite simply beyond my capability. I cannot express how very appreciative I am for all you have done for them and so for me. Now, fingers crossed.


You have quickly sorted through many possibilities, identified his interests and the opportunities that might fit. I could not ask for more.


As always we cannot thank each of you enough for all that you have done for us!!! We fully believe that using your services not only gave us the advantages that we needed to compete, successfully, during the college application process but more importantly, you created a way of thinking for each of my girls which will elevate them throughout their lives! I am sure of that! (What would Jennifer and-or Lillian say is a common question in our household!)


J. has 6 acceptances:  Dartmouth, Penn, Northwestern, UVa, Middlebury and Villanova. He is extremely happy with his results. Of course, he would not have these wonderful options without all of the guidance you provided to him and to us.  THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING! 


My college consultant was Fabulous!!! And worth every penny! She has offices in NY and Westport. I am certain D. would not be in Columbia if it was not for her. She is like a psychologist that draws out the real child and creates depth. So the effect is very real. I could go on for hours. But the earlier you start with her the better.


I want to thank you for everything you did with C. Regardless of where she does or doesn’t get into for college, on a personal level you did an amazing job working with her over and above the college “stuff.” You definitely struck some chords that needed to be and to your credit, you made a symphony out of them. The website idea, wow and then based on that, C. being asked to speak at Yale!  You did a lot for her personal growth and with getting her in touch with some very strong feelings that she has. You’re a gem. Wherever she goes to school, she will do well. I am confident of that. Thank you.


Thank you so much for all your advice. It obviously made all the difference. You are more of a therapist, helping the child express his true self, in the best way possible. A real person emerged from his essays and record, and it is all thank to your patience and encouragement. G is not introspective and I remember sitting in your office, it was like pulling teeth to have G venture forth and show himself. There is no question that the program started a chain of experiences that together added up to a very attractive prospect. MANY THANKS!!


Your kind patience, generosity and loving heart inspires us all. We will always appreciate what you have done from the bottom of our hearts. Thank you for your time and effort for Michael. We love you dearly more than you will ever know. We will miss you!!


Your experience, knowledge and expertise always left us feeling confident throughout the entire process. We could not have done this without you!! Your services were extremely valuable and in so many ways priceless!!!! Both of my girls benefited tremendously from our partnership and for that we are all truly grateful.


Working with you was the single best decision that we made. As I have told you many times before, I have heard from most that this process is usually anxiety producing and emotionally charged. Thanks to you, our experience was the exact opposite. You empowered each of my girls to make the decisions that were right for them in pursuing high school classes, activities and extracurricular projects. The choices became personal and important to them allowing them to be the best that they could be. In retrospect, you helped to shape and guide them into the achieving young ladies that they have become today. Their applications became a testament to who they are. They have learned valuable life lessons, spread their wings, and reached goals that will out last “getting into college” – That being said, the results were absolutely FANTASTIC!!!! I don’t think anyone could have asked for more!!!!


Lastly, on a personal note, I felt working with you allowed for a bonding experience with my girls that I could not have imagined. We look forward to the opportunity to work together again on post graduate plans!!


Thank you again for all you’ve done! We could not have gone through this process without you. You are my security blanket! Can I keep calling you for your advice, even though my daughter has been accepted?


You changed the course of my son’s life. We are forever grateful.


I have only one thing to say. Penn ’08! Thank you so much for all your help. You have no idea how much your guidance means to me.


We can’t thank you enough for all your concern and insight with Doug’s college admissions process. You have made a great impact in his life and we will always be grateful.


You have been such a great partner in Melanie’s success! Thank you as always.


Thank you so much for your help in this difficult process. You combined the best of wise advice with a dose of gentle therapy. Julie was like a deer in the headlights, but much to our delight, she has been accepted at xxx, her top choice school


Thank you for your fabulous guidance and support all along the way. We are so thrilled with the result. We couldn’t be happier! We will never forget you.


I just want to thank you so very much for all of your college advice. I appreciate you taking all the time you did with me, every step of the way. With your help, I made it here to NYU! I’m thrilled and from the bottom of my heart, thank you.
